You still aren't dealing with the root of why should the guys mind an Afro? It's the 'normal' hairstyle before slavery and colonialism? Should their attitude be corrected rather than catered too? Plus, who really wants a guy who likes you for 'long hair'? Talk about Eurocentric and shallow! We could have a mini discussion on the type of braid styles that are dominant pre and post colonialism...with the current prefference of micro-braids being a vary similar look to 'long straight hair')...



~You act as if these men today are by some miracle the EXACT SAME MEN from "before slavery and colonialism" days. Men don't live to be 600 - 800 years old anymore. The afro was never as "normal" to African-American men today as it was to African men THEN. And if we seek to "correct" their bad attitude towards short hair, we must not stop there. It's also shallow of them to prefer big breasts and big butts, big thighs. They're shallow like that. If they don't like you for what they "see" of you FIRST, you hardly get the chance to let them know you as a person. That's just the way it is, mostly.~
